    I think this is a white crested black polish. I also "thought" it was a pullet but now I'm wondering. Opinions? [​IMG]

    How old is it? And can we get a profile shot of the bird standing naturally?

    Age (in weeks is best) and a nice shot, showing the bird standing in side profile that is taken in natural lighting is needed for a good gender assessment.

    also like to see the crest from the front, with just a bit of white in it, I wouldn't say "white crested."

    I have no idea how old they are. We got them in an auction and think they may be a mix of some sort. All
    I know is that they are fully feathered and still peep like chicks. I'll try to get some better pictures today. They act like they've never been handled.

    Sorry, doing the best I can with lighting in here. Too cold outside still.

    #2 and the suspected rooster. Profile shots are a bit hard since they've pretty freaked out and keep hunkering down.
